Flew from Chicago to catch this show after witnessing a great show at Allstate Arena (Chicago). Was never fortunate to make it to a show pre-1995, so seeing The Dead is the closest I will ever get. This performance was great! Thanks for uploading it to the site. Franklin's Tower gave me chills while witnessing the show live and it gave me chills again today. Truly amazing. Here's to more future tours.

Subject: Exceptional
I saw two weak Birdsongs at Worcester and Meadowlands, and this one is the real thing by any standards. A relaxed deep experience with no forced anything. What a treat! As others have said, the Other One is also exceptional. Thanks to all the tapers who have allowed us to catch the whole tour even if we couldn't make it to every show.

Subject: A Dead show again...
I went to this show with Betty Cantor-Jackson, yes "Betty-Board" Betty and we LOVED this show. The first set was fine but then set II happened. "Unbroken Chain" is ALWAYS especially sweet to hear but that's when the fun really started happening for us. The Jam and then "THE OTHER ONE!" just carried me away. It had chord structure you only hear in 60's Dead and I kept yelling at Betty "are you listening to this?!" and she just smiled and agreed. The band played with an enthusiasm I haven't seen since about 1991 Dead... Thank you Dead for making feel like it was brand new all over again. And to see a nice mix of young and old 'heads was nice too. I've been saying for years, regarding my love for this music, that good art is timeless. You don't look at a Monet and think "It's good but I'd like it better if it wasn't so old". To me, the Grateful Dead are timeless and the younger kids who sing lyrics word-for-word really get it... There is hope for the future!
PS I host "Grateful Dead Nights" on Mondays at a club called (1840 Haight St - San Francisco) If in the neighborhood June 01, it will be our 17th anniversary of doing Dead Nights in San Francisco (originally at Nickie's BBQ for 14 years) God Bless the Grateful Dead!

Subject: best show of the tour? yup
jeezuz this was some amazing stuff. the other one is truly primordial. it sounds like ancient native american war music, dinosaur footsteps, and albert hoffman's bike all rolled into one.

as for the first set... it's gorgeous
and i honestly don't think anybody in their right mind could dare ask for more.

these guys are amazing. if you can do what they're doing at that age, then three cheers for you

there's nothing like the good ol grateful dead

Subject: Right On
I went to Buffalo and have been listeneing to all of the shows on the archive. This show just became the most impressive show of tour. I missed out on some of the live Gorge brodcast, I was camping at NLQP in Ohio and after 10+ beers, tequila, a bit of fungi and the Pnuma Trio 3 hours the night was pretty well through when I passed out in the drivers seat (no driving, just camping). I loved the live broadcast and am going to Rothbury to spread the Love. Thank you tapers, I hope to do some recording soon. Your recordings made this year and this tour incredibly special, THANKS and LOVE

Subject: Very very nice
I have to say that this show contains my favorite first set of the tour. Each tune is played well with the song selection itself featuring some of my favorites. The recording is amazing as is the mix for the show.

I have been so impressed with this tour as the band has gelled together and really done so much to further the legacy of this music. I have always had a lot of respect for Phil and his approach and attitude toward music and I have felt that this has been a dominant underlying force throughout. I have also been enjoying Bobby a ton. The stripped down, leaner, meaner, Rhythm Devils have also done so much to make these shows work so well musically. In terms of the "new blood", I don't think you could have found anyone better than Jeff and Warren to join the tribe. It's been such a fun tour to follow here on the archive!

This show is a gem that showcases all of the strengths of The Dead in 2009.
Reviewer: MITR - - May 18, 2009
Subject: Thank you ... for a real good time!
I am sooo psyched that this show is finally here for all to enjoy. It was the one show I was fortunate enough to attend and it was awesome. Thanks for getting it out. St. Stephen>The Eleven was the highlight for me because I had never seen the boys perform it, but the whole show was great. Jeff goes off in the 2nd set. Between his playing and Warren's voice in the background, I could swear Brent was right there on stage.

Subject: Thanx for posting!!!!
Hell yes!!! Thanx for completing the Shoreline run!! This is an amazing recording,and the show's not too shabby either! I can't thank all the tapers enough for all their time & hard work! The archive,too! Let's just hope & pray that Rothbury won't be the last show,and the boyz keep on truckin'! PEACE!!!
